Ahmed Ali, a former commander of Yemen's elite Republican Guards, said in the statement sent by an aide to Reuters that his father had died at his house, while carrying his weapon.

 

Referring to the Iran-aligned Houthi group which killed his father, Ahmed Ali said he would "confront the enemies of the homeland and humanity, who are trying to obliterate its identity and its gains and to humiliate Yemen and Yemenis".
